Presented in association with The Apollo Theater, Grammy-winning artist Patti Austin hosts an all-star evening celebrating Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th Birthday, part of The Apollo’s year-long celebration of this iconic jazz singer. The Apollo introduced Ella to the world in 1934, during the Harlem Renaissance, when she won the Amateur Nights at The Apollo contest at the age of 17, making her the first female performer to earn such a distinction. During her life-long career, she made her mark as one of the greatest scat singers in jazz history. She earned 14 Grammy Awards and collaborated with Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington, among many others. Patti Austin has been wowing audiences since her own childhood debut at the Apollo. In celebration of Ella’s centennial birthday, Patti and friends, including Monica Mancini and Ledisi, will pay tribute to the First Lady of Song.

100: The Apollo Theater Celebrates Ella’s 100th Birthday! is produced in collaboration with eight-time GRAMMY® –winning producer Gregg Field, who at the age of 24 toured as the drummer for Ella Fitzgerald. The Apollo kicked off Ella Fitzgerald’s centennial celebration with 100: The Apollo Celebrates Ella, October 22, 2016, also in collaboration with Mr. Field.

“The Apollo Theater mounted one of the best centennial tribute concerts I’ve ever experienced … a well thought out show produced by drummer Gregg Field.” — The NY Observer
